Production Errors

  1. When The Doctor speaks to Angel Bob over the communication device, he does not have a torch in his hand, however in the next shot when running past Amy he does 

  2. When The Doctor asks River Song to read out aloud the end of the book, she is clearly reading the middle 

  3. At the end of The Time of Angels, The Doctor is seen shooting the gravity globe, however he does not actually move his finger to fire a shot, but the pistol still shoots

  4. Whilst The Doctor searches a way to open the door to the forest, the set wobbles when he places his hands on it

  5. When Amy lies down on the tree stump, her hair can be seen covering her face, but during the wide shot her hair is behind her head 

  6. During the final scene in Amy's bedroom, the alarm clock changes from 11:59 AM on 6/25 to 12:00 PM on 6/26 result in a mysterious 12-hour time jump

Verdict

The Weeping Angels are back and are better than ever expanding their universe thanks to a brilliant script by Steven Moffat. Fast-paced and action-packed and full of atmosphere and some heart-pounding scenes from the Weeping Angels. The Maze of the Dead turns into a genius idea where there are Weeping Angels around every turn and corner just waiting to pounce on the cast. The variety of Weeping Angels from the Deformed to Semi-Deformed Angels pushes the characters to new heights. The script is one of the best where a group of Soldiers must navigate themselves through an impossible situation and survive, many do not, which is no surprise. A brilliant two-parter which is only plagued with a few drawn-out scenes and a rather rushed but cool resolution. If it were not for these annoyances it would be brilliant. ****​
